Bob,
I think they did it on purpose to avoid burning the highlights. Anyway, after inspecting several pictures I came up with my own custom curve in NC3 to suit my taste and uploaded it to the camera. That's the beauty of this camera, it has so many settings.
I gave it a first try during this weekend and the pictures were right, out of the camera. No need for post processing, just sharpening since I shot with sharpening set to none. Sure I have more problems with highlits in highly contrasty scenes but I should have changed to the less contrast setting in those anyway. The curve also solved the problem with pictures taken with the flash looking a tad underexposed. I just wish I could upload 2 custom curves.
If you're interested I can send you the curve so you can try it out.
Herbet.
